I am an artist today (for what it’s worth) because of my uncle, Leonel. He is the person who introduced me to the world of art and took me to my first real museum trips. Today, we are both old men and teachers. I have used a few of his works as posts here in the past and now I have a digital work to share as well. (VIDEO HERE)

What do teachers make? Teachers make humans who experience their humanity.

I wish I could tell you more.

But then you’d try to understand me,

and interpret everything the way you know.

If ever,

          there will

come a time,

          when without a body

there is a mind.

          It will awake

                    and know us well,

then call us

                    to its URL.

The way I thought

My life should go

Has turned out not to be.

The way that things

Have come to mean,

Is no mystery to me.

My life is such

A mixture of, my plans

And all we can’t foresee.

That I have learned

To twist and turn,

The things I must believe.
